New, Cold-Hardy Berries for 2014
This season, we’re thrilled to have added a variety of new Berry varieties, including several plants that thrive in colder areas. Haskap Berries and Goji Berries bring attractive foliage and gorgeous blooms to the garden, followed by delicious, easy-to-grow berries. This year (and for years to come), why not grow your own food and try something unique?
We’re carrying two varieties of Goji Berry Shrubs: Dynamite and Firecracker. These shrubs are easy-to-grow and prefer as much sun as possible. В Rich purple blooms in late spring give way to small, bright-red fruits. As the season goes on, the berries sweeten and will produce fruit all the way until frost. Goji Berries are famous for being vitamin and antioxidant-rich.
The Haskap Berry Shrub, also known as Blue-Berried Honeysuckle or Sweetberry Honeysuckle, is native to the colder Northern Hemisphere, thriving in colder growing zones. This hardy shrub has waxy-green foliage that produces elegant yellow/white flowers, followed by blue berries in the late spring. The bright green foliage keeps its color throughout the fall. We recommend pruning in early spring, after there is no more chance of frost in your area. Large, sweet berries can be eaten fresh or used to make jams and jellies. We’re carrying two varieties of this shrub: Borealis and Berry Blue.
